What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This is a book about what matters in the church, not about what is trendy, weighty, or popular. Preaching the Cross is about what endures, not what is momentarily successful. It is about what God intends for the church-that we preach his Word with its center in the person and work of Christ-and it is about what the church needs most to hear. These essays are written with wisdom, winsomeness, practicality, and biblical fidelity."
David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author, The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-Lovers, Marketers and Emergents in the Postmodern World

"This book on preaching the cross is written by the best of men who know the grace of the crucified Christ and serve in the power of his resurrection. It is a call for other ministers of the gospel to faithfully proclaim the message of the cross and the empty tomb. It is also an invitation to share in the fellowship of godly pastors who stand together for Jesus in a world that needs the gospel."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College; author, Loving the Way Jesus Loves
